Publisher Assemble Entertainment and indie studio BUNTSPECHT.GAMES announced that Fall of Porcupine, the recently-announced cosy adventure game that deals with the hardships faced in the healthcare industry, will be available — for free — for 1,000 healthcare professionals when the game launches in 2023. This special offer is limited solely to healthcare professionals using the Steam platform in the US, UK, and Canada.
Fall of Porcupine follows Finley, a freshly graduated med school student preparing for his first residency in a brand new small town that seems warm and inviting…at first. Finley must lean on his friends for advice and support as he navigates an “unhealthy” healthcare industry rooting for his demise, all while prioritizing his mental health and self-care. The game is a heartfelt, important tale about the hardships endured by healthcare workers, while also delivering itself as a love letter to the human journey of self-discovery, self-love, and the joys that come with life’s small (and big) accomplishments.
Honouring the announcement, the development team has released an all-new devlog video discussing the inspirations and themes behind their first-ever published title. Lets take a look.
This initiative hosted by the developer and Assemble Entertainment couldn’t be more spot-on, given the publisher’s company slogan, “Saving the World. Game by Game.” Fall of Porcupine’s poignant premise is based upon over 20 interviews conducted by the dev team with healthcare professionals from varying sectors. As a “thank you” to those who participated, and every other individual that makes sacrifices to serve others, the teams conjured the idea to literally give back.
For those healthcare professionals interested in redeeming the offer on Steam, please reach out directly to email@example.com and read the Conditions for Participation.
Modulate, creators of voice technology that elevates the health and safety of online communities, today announced that it has partnered with ADL (the Anti-Defamation League) to support their Center for Technology and Society (CTS) in scaling its work to combat hate in online gaming spaces.
ADL has a proud history of monitoring antisemitism and extremism online to ensure the safety of Jewish communities and other marginalized groups from coast to coast. Since early 2017, ADL’s Center for Technology and Society has led the charge against cyber hate. CTS convenes key stakeholders such as technology companies, NGOs, and academics to measure and stop the spread of cyber hate. As ADL and CTS continue to expand their research in the games industry, Modulate will be able to apply these learnings in the continued development of ToxMod and other products designed to help studios and development teams fight hate online.
“ADL is thrilled to partner with Modulate to advance our shared goals of a hate-free digital world,” said Daniel Kelley, Director of Strategy and Operations at CTS. “Digital spaces,
especially online gaming communities, offer wonderful opportunities for entertainment and positive interpersonal experiences but have the potential to become havens of online hate, with over 80% of adult gamers experiencing harassment.”
“The ADL’s research has been a driving force in Modulate’s development of ToxMod to fight toxic behavior in online games,” said Hank Howie, Games Industry Evangelist at Modulate. “Becoming an ADL Corporate Partner Against Hate is a real validation of our efforts to address the growing problem of toxic behavior.”
ToxMod is gaming’s only proactive, voice-native moderation solution. Built on advanced machine learning technology and designed with player safety and privacy in mind, ToxMod triages voice chat to flag bad behavior, analyzes the nuances of each conversation to determine toxicity, and enables
moderators to quickly respond to each incident by supplying relevant and accurate context. In contrast to reactive reporting systems, which rely on players to take the effort to report bad behavior, ToxMod is the only voice moderation solution in games today that enables studios to respond proactively to toxic behavior and prevent harm from escalating.
